Folks, the books are closed on BOTH of our adoptions! Let the praises ring. After four years, Daniel was officially re-adopted...meaning that he can now have a birth certificate on file in a state office of vital records instead of only having the one copy of his Russian birth certificate. He can now apply for a U.S. passport if needed.
At the same hearing, we were able to finalize Baby J's adoption and legally provide him with our last name and the best big brother ever. At the court session to support us were my Dad and his wife as well and Keith's brother and our sister-in-law along with our nephew.
It's official. Final. Case closed. We are a family of four and loving every minute of it.
